The Sacromonte Abbey
Since the foundation of this Abbey in the 17th century, gypsies of Granada settled on caves that were on the way to it so they took advantage of the great amount of visitors and devoted people providing them with amusement and leisure or reading their palms. The Sacromonte district is the true Mecca of the Zambra dancing from where many popular artists have arisen.
The way offers wonderful views of the Avellano fountain, there are four remaining monumental crosses out of thousands of them that were on this hill during the 17th century by different guilds, families and devoted visitors. Below the church, the catacombs where St Cecil (first bishop and today patron saint of Granada) was martyred are located.
It can be reached by the Camino del Sacromonte way, which starts in the Peso de la Harina located in the middle of Cuesta del Chapiz hill, or by the Camino de San Antonio departing from Haza Grande. This abbey has been declared Site of Cultural Interest.
